EMC Opens the Door for Aztec Businesses


Last Wednesday was SDSU’s first-ever Entrepreneur Day. Students and alumni set up booths along Centennial Walkway to network and showcase their products. Among the participants were some familiar companies started by Aztec alumni including Costco, Rubio’s, and Volcom. The event was planned by SDSU’s Entrepreneurial Management Center (EMC) which equips students with skills and opportunities to create their own business.

Coming up next week, we’ll be posting video clips on Twitter from some of our student entrepreneurs. Here are a few of their stories to get things started:

The EMC places a big emphasis on bringing together students from different majors and programs to create dynamic companies with the right blend of skill and creativity. Their Lavin VentureStart Program requires teams to have representation from multiple colleges and encourages collaboration about students from various areas of study.

Follow the EMC on Twitter and keep up with what the center has to offer.
